Beautiful. People in the South East, see we can never have investments like this.
We think we're pushing an agenda by sitting at home and destroying government facilities, not knowing we're scaring investors away. No sensible company would want to invest in a place with fickle minded and butthurt individuals
By the time we're balls deep in this mess, it'd be mission failed successfully.

When Sanwo-olu launches taxi services you guys remind him that it is not the business of Lagos.

Now, you want to tell us this is a private investment.

I'm sure you prefer he invests in a brewery.

Sharap.

I would continue to call you out when your intention is to mislead and reduce the progress the state continues to make.

Most annoyingly, your type can find no better state to live or make enterprise.

Always writing rubbish.

Oga which mislead? He is saying a fact it is a private investment Lagos did nothing to encourage that investment. It is common sense to have a data center like this in Lagos because all the heavy data usage for companies is in Lagos and mind you Lagos had that status as the capital of Nigeria from Colonial times till the 90s so it is nothing fantastic that Lagos state government did bros cool down with the image laundering.

Even if Southeast was not enmeshed with insecurities, we still wouldn’t compete with Lagos. Lagos is the commercial nerve centre of West-Africa. Lagos is hugely benefitting from Nigeria’s huge population.
Port Harcourt ought to have been the nerve centre of the eastern region as Lagos is to western region and by extension West Africa but they lost all that due to myopic thinking. If
You check the master plan of Michael Okpara, you’d be amaze the how much plan they put in the Aba-Portharcourt precinct. Port Harcourt would have given Lagos a stiff competition because not only would she be a huge commercial centre, oil wealth would have made her a lot richer than Lagos. People would migrate to the garden-city as a first choice before considering Lagos. But we’ve lost all that to greed and ethnic insecurities

The true enemies of Nigeria are those who oppose Tinubu and the legacy in Lagos. They want us to continue drinking imkpuru mirin and making all youth to join yahoo yahoo league or drug peddling barons. They always shed crocodile tears of marginalisation when they are the architect of their own marginalisation. They abuse other tribes, they are arrogant and they think they know it all. These are the true enemies of Nigerian progress. Whether they like it or not, Tinubu is the next president.

Was Calabar not the capital of Nigeria at one point?

If Lagos had behaved like Warri which was once a heavily industrialised and thriving city, it would be indistinguishable from other states today.

Data centers don't necessarily need to be in the big cities.

They can be in the outskirts whilst still lending their services without hitch.

why didn't they invest in the south east before all these sit at home started? Afterall it's started in 2021.
Why didn't they invest in the south east since? If you're Igbo then you're a foolish Igbo person.
Why didn't they invest in uyo, AKwa IBOM state that there is no sit at home and the state is growing very well?


You don't understand this thing need population and the market which the east doesn't have.


Why didn't they invest in Rivers State where there is no sit at home?

LAGOS ‘AGBEROS’ GENERATE ANNUAL REVENUE OF N123 BILLION, REPORT SAYS
“If Lagos Agberos were to constitute themselves into a state, they would be richer than 35 Nigerian states, second only to their home base, Lagos state.” – Anonymous

‘Agberos’ in Lagos generate an estimated annual revenue of N123.078 billion amassed from daily road use taxes levied on bus drivers, tricycle riders and motorcycle operators in the state.

This is according to a recent research report by the International Centre for Investigative Reporting (ICIR).

Levies on commercial buses (danfo)
Each commercial vehicle driver pays at least N3,000 to Agberos as ticket fee.
There are an estimated 75,000 commercial buses operating in Lagos, according to the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA).
Estimated daily total collection: N225 million
Estimated monthly total collection: N6.75 billion
Estimated yearly total collection: N82.125 billion

Levies on Tricycle operators (keke napep)
Each keke napep rider pays at least N1,800 to Agberos per day.
There are an estimated 50,000 tricycles operating in Lagos, according to Techcabal.
Estimated daily total collection: N90 million
Estimated monthly total collection: N2.7 billion
Estimated yearly total collection: N32.85 billion

Levies on motorcycle operators (okada)
Each okada rider pays at least N600 to Agberos per day.
There are an estimated 37,000 okada riders operating in Lagos, according to Motorcycle Operators Association of Lagos State (MOALS).
Estimated daily total collection: N22.2 million
Estimated monthly total collection: N666 million
Estimated yearly total collection: N8.103 billion

The total annual revenue from the three major modes of transport in Lagos state amounts to N123.078 billion.

The ICIR report admitted that these figures may yet be underestimated as daily levies on the transporters are much higher in some parts of Lagos including Mushin, Isolo, Itire/Ikate among others.
Nigerian states with the highest Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) in 2020
Lagos State recorded the highest Internally Generated Revenue of N418.99 billion, accounting for 32.1% of the total, closely followed by Rivers State with N117.19 billion.
Other states with the highest IGR in 2020 include Abuja (N92.06 billion), Delta (N59.73 billion), Kaduna (N50.75 billion), Ogun (N50.75 billion), and Oyo State (N38.04 billion).

As the data shows, Lagos Agberos surpassed all other states besides Lagos in revenue generation beating oil-producing Rivers State by a handsome N5.89 billion naira.

Where is the money?
The report found no trace that much of this revenue gets into government coffers as the money was not accounted for in the state’s annual financial statements.

Also, the report revealed that “although the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) says on its website that ‘road taxes’ are among the 25 taxes that are collected by the state government….the government agency provides no evidence on the website that road taxes are being collected by the state government.”

The report further revealed that although some of the revenue was being remitted to the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and to the rival union RTEAN, the bulk of the money being generated was most likely completing its journey in private pockets.

“The [motor park] chairman takes the huge chunk of the money, shares the rest to his subordinates and leaves little in an account operated by his union,” it stated.
